Constantine the African and ʻAlī Ibn Al-ʻAbbās Al-Maǧūsī: The Pantegni and Related Texts

Charles S. F. Burnett, Danielle Jacquart
BRILL, 1994 - 364 páginas
When the tenth-century "K?mil as-sin?'a" (or "al-Kit?b al-malak?") of 'Al? ibn al-'Abb's al-Ma s? was adapted for a Latin-reading audience by Constantine the African in the late eleventh century, the medieval West had, for the first time, the opportunity to use a text which covered the whole of medicine. But the 100-odd extant manuscripts suggest that Contantine's "Pantegni" was put together over a considerable period of time, and chapters from other Latin and newly-translated Arabic medical works were added to or substituted those of the "K?mil," This book is the first to be devoted to Constantine the African: it sheds light on the School of Salerno and the formation of a medical corpus in the High Middle Ages.
